Abstract:

Zingiber officinale Roscoeor ginger, is a common and extensively utilized spice. It is abundant in phenolic compounds, terpenes, polysaccharides, lipids, organic acids, and unprocessed fibers, among other chemical constituents. The phenolic compounds found in ginger, such as shogaols and gingerols, are primarily responsible for its health benefits. Research over time has shown that ginger has a wide range of biological properties, such as anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, anticancer, neuroprotective, cardiovascular, respiratory, anti-obesity, antidiabetic, anti-nausea, and antiemetic effects. We provide an overview of the current understanding of ginger's bioactive substances and bioactivities in this review, and we also go over the mechanisms of action with this revised review paper, we hope to raise awareness of ginger and its potential uses going forward, such as in the creation of functional foods or nutraceuticals for the management and prevention of chronic illnesses. Considerable attention is being paid to the clinical uses of ginger with the hope of achieving therapeutic benefits. The goal of this systematic review is to present a thorough analysis of the clinical effects of ginger in all fields that have been studied.
